committee. congressman, good morning. >> good morning, chris. >> u.n. representative cole sent a letter to president morsi asking him to refrain from giving hamas cover to intensify its attacks by allowing egyptian delegations to visit gaza. of course, morsi has been a major player in these truce negotiations. do you think he's sending a mixed message? >> well, he is sending a mixed message. you know, i hope that president morsi is able to play a constructive role. but when high-level delegations of egyptians go into gaza under the pretense of a cease-fire and then terrorist groups violate that cease fire, if israel were to defend itself and members of the delegation was tragically hurt in that attack, we do not want that to be used as a pretense to violate the egyptian/israeli peace treaty. one other thing on this, chris. look, there's a fundamental truth here. i was on the border of gaza and israel in august of 2005 when israel unilaterally and without any preconditions left gaza. actually went in and asked jews this in there to leave. they said here is the land, build something with

people's daily" ran a 55-page photo spread on its website in tribute to kim jong-un citing a report by the onion. apparently it was lost on them that the onion is satire. the chinese paper went on to call kim a devastatingly handsome round-faced heart throb. as our politicians wrangle over tax increases, outrage in france over a proposed 160% tax hike on beer. brewers and customers say it's not fair because the tax is only being leveed on beer, not on other alcoholic drinks like wine. the government says this is a public health issue because more people abuse beer than abuse wine. opponents say it's just that wine makers have more political clout. >>> and cyber sales soaring. cnbc'smandy drury is here with what's moving your money. final numbers aren't in yet, but the early numbers show a pretty great cyber monday, mandy. >> many sites showed really big sales despite the busy online shopping sales leading up to cyber monday. here are the numbers we've got so far. online sales at the top retailers were up by just over 28% from the same time last year. and the other good thing here, c

to emphasize some aspects and down play others. and frankly, i think the u.n. ambassador along with the secretary of state should be above politics. >> i would just ask the president to step back for a moment and realize that all of us here hold the secretary of state to a very different standard than most cabinet members. >> so i guess the question now is with this growing it seems opposition, does it make it less likely that she's going to get the nomination or is the white house going to even push for it harder? >> i think in some sense it's becoming a little bit a, pardon the phrase, test of manhood for the president. it's just extraordinary to see this kind of argumentation over somebody who has not yet been nominated. usually we wait for the nomination to have the argument about whether somebody should be confirmed. but the president clearly likes susan rice. i'm told that he wants her. there is a confidence on the part of senate democrats that she would be confirmed. and frankly, at this point, how would the president look in terms of his strength and bargaining if he we

. >> joy-ann reid, great to see you. molly ball, thank you. >>> also today, israel says the u.n. vote recognizing palestine as a state is, quote, meaningless. the general assembly voted overwhelmingly yesterday 138-9 to give palestine status as a nonmember observer state. the united states voted against that resolution, but the new status means palestinians will have access to international bodies which could make it easier to challenge israel's occupation, as they say, in the west bank. how much is your current phone bill? four sixteen seventy six a month! okay, come with me -- we're gonna save you money. with straight talk at walmart, you get unlimited talk, text and data for only $45 a month per phone. would we get the same coverage? same coverage on america's best networks. you saved $146.76 by switching to straight talk. awesome! now you can afford to share your allowance with me. get the season's hottest smartphones like the samsung galaxy s2 and get straight talk with unlimited data for just $45 a month -- from america's gift headquarters. walmart. ♪ why use temporary treatme

to shrink people's access to the polls. it's unacceptable and un-american. >> good to have you on the program. thank you so much. now let me bring in former republican governor from new jersey. it's always good to see you and let me ask you first about your state because i saw this morning, i think there's still almost a million homes without power. so many schools are closed and another storm is coming. i mean, that's hard to believe. how are you all doing in new jers jersey and do you think it's going to have an impact on turnout? >> well, we're one of these people that don't have power. although being on a farm, we have a generator, so we're so much better off than the shore, but there are a lot of people that are still hurts. chris christie's a republican. he's doing everything he can to make sure people have the tount to vote. our polling place has been changed, but the signs are up. he's bringing in everything he can to ensure that people have access to the ballot. i don't know what went on in florida, but in this day and age, it's inexcusable that in this country, we hav

'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >>. >> and the president drew a line on taxes saying revenue must come from people who make over $250,000. >> what have i'm not going to do is extend further a tax cut for folks who don't need it, which would cost close to a trillion dollars. >> i want to bring in a columnist for the "washington post." good morning. let's start with you. over the next two days, congress is holding those closed hearings on libya. we saw a very strong defense on susan rice. do you think number one, we'll learn something from the hearings. do you think we'll hear a nomination for susan rice? >> well, it's the nomination that certainly seem to be what obama was hinting at yesterday, although he was clear he had not made the decision. that was an exthe record theirly strong defense in particular to accepting david petraeus' resignation so quickly. hopefully some

the fruits of that, those promises and it's really a great thing. >> un, we can't help but think of jfk. when he was elected. >> oh, yeah. >> the issue of catholicism was being debated. that was a big milestone. you being elected as a muslim was another. we have mitt romney as a presidential candidate, a mormon. >> right. >> we look at all of these here. the issue of religion, the wider religious representation that's happening at the moment, does it show it is becoming an issue or is it a nonissue in the voting booth now? >> it's both for different people. there is no doubt about it there are people who write to my office every day decrying the fact that i'm a muslim and there are people, you know, mormons have been subject to discrimination and mitt romney had to deal with some of that but what it really shows is most americans believe in religious tolerance. most people believe in inclusion. but there is a vocal minority who always lets us know they are there trying to buy people on the basis of religion. and, unfortunately, we can't ignore them but, fortunately, they don't rule the day. >

of state. john mccain sounds like he is softening his opposition to u.n. ambassador susan rice. >> is there anything that ambassador rice can do to change your mind? >> sure. she can give everyone the benefit of explaining their position and the actions that they took and i will be glad to have the opportunity to discuss these issues with her. >> this past wednesday ambassador rice said she relied only on the information she was given by intelligence officials when she said the attack on the benghazi consulate was sparked by an anti-muslim film protest. sfx- "sounds of african drum and flute" look who's back. again? it's embarrassing it's embarrassing! we can see you carl. we can totally see you. come on you're better than this...all that prowling around. yeah, you're the king of the jungle. have you thought about going vegan carl? hahaha!! you know folks who save hundreds of dollars by switching to geico sure are happy. how happy are they jimmy? happier than antelope with night-vision goggles. nice! get happy. get geico. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more.
